Councillor Richard Owain Jones

Cllr Jones was re-elected earlier this month as one of three county councillors serving the Twrcelyn ward, which covers Amlwch, Llaneilian, Llanbadrig and Rhosybol.

Born and bred in Amlwch, he has worked as a paramedic in the community for more than 21 years.

Cllr Jones thanked his fellow members for granting him with the honour of becoming the Council’s civic head during 2017/18.

He said, “To be elected as Council Chairman is a huge honour and I thank my fellow councillors for placing their trust in me. I will represent the County Council, our Island and its residents to the best of my abilities. I look forward to my year in office and carrying out my many civic duties with huge pride.”

Working full time and Council commitments do not stop Richard from playing a very active role in the local community.

He is Chairman of Governors at Ysgol Syr Thomas Jones, Amlwch; a governor at Ysgol Gynradd Amlwch, and Deputy Chairman of the Ynys Môn Island Games Committee.

Richard is also a member of the #LoveAmlwch community group and enjoys fundraising for local causes with friends.

Despite supporting Leeds Utd, Richard still manages to enjoy his football. He plays walking football for Amlwch Town FC and the team of over 45s narrowly lost out in the final of a national competition in Manchester recently. He’s an active member of the Amlwch Town FC Committee and also enjoys golf, fishing and various other sports.

Richard has been married to Gwenda for 25 years. They have two children, Lois who is a nurse at Ysbyty Gwynedd, Bangor, and Rheon, who is currently studying at Cardiff University.

Cllr Dylan Rees, who represents the Canolbarth Môn ward, was elected as vice-chairman for 2017/18.
